Calling all aspiring natural builders
Date(s) - February 22, 2017 - March 10, 2017
Time - 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Location - SPAN Community House
Calling all aspiring natural builders for immediate action!!!
Two volunteer positions
Two people are wanted to help finish a cob and bush pole structure in the Span Community Garden in Thornbury.
You will be tutored in mixing and applying earthen and lime based renders, sanding timber and applying natural timber finishes. You will learn and assist with paving and potentially some basic carpentry construction as well as site clean-up.
No experience necessary, but if you have it, it’s a bonus.
This is an opportunity to gain hands on experience in natural building and be a part of a fun community project in a welcoming and accessible setting. The nature of the work is rewarding, creative and sometimes meditative, however it also requires a certain physical endurance.
The hours are 9.00am – 5.00pm on the following dates Wednesday 22nd February, Friday 24th February, Tuesday 28th February, Wednesday 1st March, Thursday 2nd March, Friday 3rd March, and Tuesday 7th to Friday 10th March (inclusive).
A strong commitment is needed due to the instruction required and the limited time frame in which to finish the project.
Women, queer and gender diverse people are encouraged to apply.
Please email [email protected] with a brief paragraph about what you can offer and why you would like to be involved.
